I have visited a company this month where 70% of their computers were windows XP and 2k3 servers. Crazy!

Re: Why are you surprised?
Let me guess...... you work for Micosucks, or maybe Dell.  They have trashed 3 computers in the last year with updates.  They have a way of getting rid of older computers w/out going to Windows 10.  The economy needs a lift with shutdowns.   Windows 7 by the way is not as pervaasive as Windows 10 and isn't as monotonous an attempt at windows 10 as in Windows 8.  If you are happy with and can keep your older PC by all means do it.

Why are you surprised?
When Microsoft, along with Intel, want to tell you exactly how you can use and configure your computer, as in "You WILL do it OUR WAY", people just get tired of it and won't upgrade.  I am typing this from an XP box.  Works just fine for almost everything I need to do.  It's not the money, it's I just don't like not being able to tailor the system the way I want.
